I am very pleased to announce that Haseeb Irfanullah has graciously agreed to join The Scholarly Kitchen as a regular contributor. Haseeb describes himself as a “research enthusiast”, and has served in many different roles in his career, beginning with a PhD in aquatic ecology from the University of Liverpool. Since then, he has served as the editor for the Bangladesh Journal of Plant Taxonomy, and worked for a variety of international development organizations, academic institutions, and the government of Bangladesh. He’s also a visiting research fellow at the University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh, serving in its Center Sustainable Development (CSD) in Dhaka. Haseeb has been involved in many of INASP’s efforts including BanglaJOL and AuthorAID and has designed and facilitated workshops and training sessions for young and mid-career researchers in Bangladesh.

As both the research community and the scholarly publishing community have become increasingly international, we’ve been working to bring in voices from regions beyond the US and the EU, and we’re very excited that Haseeb has agreed to bring in information and opinion from his area of the world. Please join me in welcoming Haseeb, his previous guest post can be found here, and his first post as a Chef is here.
